If you've enjoyed any of the short stories here, above is a link to my first novel. For the low cost of $2.99, you can immerse yourself in an account of a convicted killer's final days on death row.
While the novel is pretty good, your buying it will enable me to buy the time to write an even better one, because now I know what I didn't know then. Even if you don't buy it, I'd like to say that I still appreciate your visit to my website. Every visit is a little bit of evidence that writing is what I'm supposed to be doing, even if the living it's earning me can scarcely be called living.
Some of the things I enjoy most about being a starving artist are:
1. Not contributing to the military industrial complex with taxes, because I don't earn enough to have to pay any.
2. The ability to view things objectively, as an outsider, which has the potential to provide some valuable insights impossible for those with a stake in the system. Plus I get to tell the truth no matter who likes or doesn't like it.
3. Liking the person I see when I look in the mirror
Some things I don't enjoy about being a starving artist are:
1. Not having money to travel or go out with friends.
As you can clearly see, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, although I'm hesitant to use the superlative "far". The biggest reason for appreciation for anyone buying the book is being able to go to a real dentist. It wouldn't even have to be in America, where they overcharge everyone because they believe their own propaganda that we're all rich here.
